About Kurt-Weill-Gesellschaft e.v.

Our Mission

The memory of Weill

Die Kurt-Weill-Gesellschaft e.V., gegründet 1993, hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, „das Andenken Kurt Weills in seiner Geburtsstadt auf jede geeignete Weise zu erhalten“. In den letzten Jahren hat sie sich zu einer internationalen Vereinigung entwickelt, der mittlerweile Mitglieder aus vier Kontinenten angehören, darunter bedeutende Wissenschaftler, Künstler, Politiker sowie Fachleute aus der Wirtschaft. Die Kurt-Weill-Gesellschaft e.V. betreibt das Kurt Weill Zentrum und veranstaltet das jährlich stattfindende Kurt Weill Fest Dessau, welches sich zu einem überregional beachteten Festival der Musik der klassischen Moderne entwickelt hat. 

The Kurt-Weill-Gesellschaft E. V. runs the Kurt Weill center and organizes the annual Kurt Weill festival Dessau, which has developed into a nationwide acclaimed festival of classical modern music. In the scientific field, the society contributes to international Weill research with symposia, lectures and its own series of papers. The seat of the company is the former Meisterhaus Feininger and today's Kurt Weill center.

Kurt Weill

The Kurt Weill Festival is an international music festival held annually since 1993 with more than 50 events, at 21 venues, in 4 cities.

It has set itself the task of cultivating the musical legacy of composer Kurt Weill (*1900 in Dessau † 1950 in New York) and sets standards in the lively cultivation of the cultural wealth of Classical Modernism, for which Kurt Weill stands just as much as his native city of Dessau-Roßlau.

Kurt Weill Center

Museum, archive, library and media library in one: since 1993, we have maintained the legacy of the composer at the Kurt Weill Zentrum in Dessau-Roßlau, who was born here, and made it accessible to Europe.
